    Promises? Threat seems more apropos. :banghead:

    FWIW: It was an accidental discovery for me too. About 18-19 years ago. :D

    Welcome to the "old geezer" audiofest.

    By the time I was twenty-five I had sold all my JBL horn systems I scrounged...

    A bit off topic, but a forum member told me privately that he purchased a pair of JBL’s replacements for the 476Mg. They are called 877Mg and appear to be Radian drivers with JBL built diaphragms....

    I guess we all assumed you followed basic trouble shooting 101 before deciding to jump into opening up the drivers.

    Did you try swapping your left channel 476Mg with the one on the right? This...

    I'd submit more people are familiar with the famous Maxell tape ad than with L100s. Most people I know lump L100s in with the product category they call large brown boxes. This includes '70s...

    Recently I saw the announcement that a very lightly tweaked L100 Classic was being rolled out as the 75th Anniversary JBL... quite a change from the full blown assault on the audio industry just 15...

    Welcome to the forum, if you can grab a shot of model numbers on the woofers and the compression drivers, that would help identify the system. If you are asking what the model of the cabinet is, I...

    Sorry man, I couldn't help myself.

    In all seriousness, the mic technique and liveness of the two rooms are substantially different, so even if you had identical speakers in both rooms, the sound...

    If I was going that route, I would likely go the Yamaha route myself, but good for Samsung, at least their marketing department is smarter than Harmanís.

    Welcome to the other side. Other than a pair of L100s I picked up along the way and recently gave to a buddy, all the JBLs I have had were horn loaded. The bigger the better!

    I would if I had aluminum, Be, or aquaplas dusted diaphragms in the 2445s. Stock, I'm not sure if I would prefer the change.
    You obviously will need to change the horns, 2311 horns should drop in,...

    The foam in there does go bad and may get into the VC gap and cause problems. The original damping pads that JBL used in the '50s and '60s was a thick sheet of felt. It appears to last forever.
